In July I enjoyed a week with my two best nieces. They are wonderful girls, full of energy and always up for something creative. We immediately installed a blanket fort in the main bedroom
created a terrarium for random found turtles (and got a bad case of chiggers in the process)
hunted rocks (and made quite a splash!)
then painted them with elaborate scenes...(miniatures courtesy of the local thrift store)
played with buttons
admired a giant moth
and a teensy inchworm
and relaxed with some very chilly homemade blackberry icecream.
It was wonderful!
